Luiza Kessler

BSc Physiotherapy MHCPC MCSP
Women's health Physiotherapist
APPI Pilates Instructor

Luiza is a musculo-skeletal and women’s health physiotherapist and Pilates instructor.  Luiza completed her Bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy in her home country of Brazil at the Federal University of Health Sciences of Porto Alegre in 2013.  Coming from a background in ballet, she has been deeply involved with movement for the last 20 years. Throughout her dance studies she used Pilates herself to treat and prevent injuries, which led her to start the Pilates instructor course from Metacorpus Pilates while still at university.  After graduating, Luiza gained valuable experience as a Pilates instructor and as a physiotherapist working with dancers.

Since 2017, Luiza has lived and worked here in the UK, developing her research in contemporary dance and deepening her knowledge in the Pilates method alongside dancing professionally herself.  In 2019, Luiza embarked on a specialisation in women’s health physiotherapy and completed her masters degree in physiotherapy in women’s health at university of Bradford.  Specialising in women’s health physiotherapy has allowed Luiza to combine her passions for movement, physiotherapy, pilates and women’s health to help women across the ages with all aspects of their health and wellness from pregnancy, post natal, menopause and beyond.


Luiza draws beautifully on her Physiotherapy knowledge, Pilates training and personal experience as a professional contemporary dancer. Her passion lies in helping all people reach their maximal movement potential.

Luiza is a terrific teacher. I’m enjoying attending her Reformer on the mat class, after taking her Improver class before lockdown. I very much appreciate her creativity, knowledge, skill and generosity as a teacher
Luiza's classes are great. She explain the exercises very well and even though I've done years of pilates she has taught me new things to engage my body. Again great variation of classes, spends time checking us online and giving feedback. I've really enjoyed her improver classes as they really get me working on the basic elements in a hard way.
